Simon Cowell is impressed by ''yummy mummy'' Chloe Mafia on tonight's edition of 'The X Factor'
Simon Cowell is impressed by a "yummy mummy" on tonight's 'X Factor'.
The usually stern judge is intrigued by Chloe Mafia's performance, despite her getting a round of boos from the crowd, fellow judge Louis Walsh and guest panellist singer Nicole Scherzinger.
19-year-old Chloe – who has been accused of being a prostitute – tells on the show how she believes she has the recipe for success, saying: "There's no one out there like me. I act like a star, sing like a star, dance like a star, dress like a star. I'm the recipe for the star."
However, her renditions of traditional song 'Summertime' and Shakira's 'Underneath Your Clothes' fail to impress Louis and leave the crowd against her, but Simon is, surprisingly, more positive.
He tells her: "Chloe look, I don't know if this is going to surprise you or not, but I actually really like you. I think you are unprepared, but I actually think you're talented.
"I've heard more rubbish from you in the last five minutes than I've ever heard and yet still I think there's something there."
Chloe – who has a 19 month old daughter - pleads with the Judges on the show, telling them at the Manchester auditions: "I honestly can sing."
Louis votes against sending her to Boot Camp, but Simon says yes, and Nicole is eventually persuaded to join him and send Chloe through.
Also on tonight's show a young mother of two breaks down in front of the judges.
Rebecca, 23, is moved to tears when she explains how she thought she'd never become a singer after motherhood, but her version of Sam Cooke's 'A Change Is Gonna Come' is well received and she is sent through to the next round with Nicole telling her her voice "moves" her.
'The X Factor' is on ITV1 at 7.30 pm.
